Around the Web This Week

Via Anthology: The way Douglas Coupland composes objects on shelves is just as cool as that whole LEGO thing In Microserfs:

This isn’t the first time Coupland’s eye has caught our eyes. Here’s the first time. Here’s the second time. He’s also a great Twitterer (Tweeter? Whatever.) to follow.  Also, regarding Anthology, if you haven’t subscribed yet, you are missing out. You’ll save each one as you would a favorite coffee table book, so don’t let the price scare you away. You can have it delivered to your door by signing up here, or find it at Anthropologie.

Via ArchDaily: Coolest bridge ever? Look out Calatrava, Zaha Hadid has thrown quite a hat into the sculptural bridge ring. The Sheikh Zayed Bridge in Abu Dhabi is like some sort of Arabian Loch Ness Monster stretched from shore to shore. Actually, when I look at Christian Richters’ photographs of it, it looks like something different from every angle.

I also love the sketches of the bridge. It’s amazing to see it evolve on one piece of paper. Doesn’t it look kind of like a pathological liar’s polygraph results?:

Via This Old House: World’s Wildest Houses IX. I think that says enough about it; I don’t want to ruin the surprises by describing anything more than The Bottle House.

Via YouTube: Just in case you’ve been living under a rock:  The now-famous Willie Nelson/Coldplay Chipotle commerical that was first shown during the Grammy Awards show on Sunday. What did you think of the commercial, regardless of what you think of Chipotle? Let us know in the comments section.

    Mon Dieu indeed! The Douglas Coupland composition is quite marvelous and I shall indeed check him out.
    I also rather like the Pathological Liar bridge!

    Love those shelves. Do you think he keeps the TV tuned to the eyes all the time though, or does he occasionally change channels?
